LaFave Reiterates Need for Auto Insurance Reform
02/15/2019- The local Michigan State Representative has renewed his top legislative priority following Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s State of the State Address. Representative Beau LaFave of Iron Mountain weighed in on Tuesday night’s Address by reiterating the need to create a solution to Michigan’s highest-in-the-nation car insurance premiums and hold the governor accountable for her promises made. The state’s no-fault car insurance system leads more than seven million motorists to pay rates nearly twice as much as in neighboring states like Wisconsin. LaFave has been a strong advocate for auto insurance reform and has recently been appointed to the bipartisan House Select Committee on Reducing Car Insurance Rates to pursue a solution, with the authority to report legislation directly to the House floor for consideration. LaFave said the governor has failed to provide any meaningful plan on how to save Michigan drivers money.
